Jim Henderson and Atheists

9:00-10:00am: Jim and his wife talked about Simplicity Spirituality and how we can be closer to God and develop a closer relationship to Christ.

Interacting with Christ is quite easy; come to him with an open heart. Be not afraid . This is kind of like studying sociology. Come with an open-mind and be prepared to put one self in their place in order to understand their predicament better(sociological imagination).

10:00-11:00am: Panel on Atheists by Jim Henderson

The argument is that they are humanists and heavy on scientific background. The ideal is if you cannot refute then it cannot be truth. Sociology argues that human behavior can be predicted using statistical analysis, however its important to note that within the field: quantitative vs qualitative(argument over deep understanding vs finding truth); the field can be quite understanding by using ethnographic skills and obtaining a deep insight in the issue being studied.

Those on the panel applaud Pastor Phil for developing warm relations in order create dialogue and discussion.
